Military - technical cooperation or research and development in the field of defence were some of the issues discussed at the meeting of the Minister of Defence of the SR Martin Glváč with the Minister of Defence of the Kingdom of Sweden Karin Enstrőm during his official visit to the Kingdom of Sweden. They also addressed the issue of modernization of the Slovak supersonic aviation and signed the intergovernmental agreement on defence cooperation. “The main focus of the agreement is not only on military and technical cooperation or research and development, but also on education and training, logistics, operations in terrain and on military medical service,” stated Glváč.

The Minister also visited the international centre of the Swedish armed forces (SWEDINT), which provides for education and training aimed at the service in the peacekeeping operations under the auspices of the UN, NATO and EU. “We would very much like to encourage and promote cooperation with this centre. Slovakia can offer both the educational and science and research projects run in the Slovak Armed Forces Academy in Liptovský Mikuláš, as well as the Military Training Area Lešť or the EOD Centre of Excellence in Trenčín,” said the Minister.
